Dordt University Sees Record Spring Enrollment
January 28, 2021 3:20pm
Dordt University has a total enrollment of 1,623 students for the spring 2021 semester, which includes 1,261 full-time undergraduate students and 236 graduate students. In comparison, during the spring 2020 semester Dordt had a total enrollment of 1,553 students, including 1,250 full-time undergraduates and 155 graduate students. The 2021 enrollment is a record head count for the spring semester, according to Jim Bos, registrar and director of Institutional Research. “Students want to be here,” says Bos.
Brandon Huisman, vice president for enrollment and marketing, says that a Dordt education is valuable not only in helping students find employment but in helping them make sense of the changing world as well.
“Our biblical framework recognizes that we live in a broken world and calls us to work toward how things ought to be—even in the midst of a difficult year,” says Huisman.
A record spring enrollment also highlights Dordt’s growing graduate and online programs. This spring, 21 students are participating in Dordt’s new Master of Social Work (MSW) program, 10 students are enrolled in Dordt’s new Master of Public Administration (MPA) program, and 206 students are taking courses in Dordt’s Master of Education (M.Ed.) program. In addition, 104 high school students are enrolled in Dordt’s dual credit program this spring, up from 22 enrollees last spring.
“I think our programs are flourishing because we are designing programs that people want and work with their schedules,” says Joe Bakker, director of online education at Dordt. “Social workers are looking for a Christian MSW program. Teachers are looking for a master’s degree that develops their professional skills and leads to additional licensure endorsements. High school students are looking for Christian dual credit options that work with their existing high school schedule.”
